FIRE'S FIELD BY JILLIAN JACOBS - VIRTUAL & REVIEW TOUR + GIVEAWAY


Fire's Field
by Jillian Jacobs

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Bound by a dark enchantment, only an elemental flame can light the way.
Vengeance
Forged in rage and sorrow, a dark witch’s spell travels down her ancestral line to Violet Levina. Enchanted with the power of the entire Electromagnetic spectrum—microwaves, gamma rays, radio waves, Violet is cursed with limitless energy and the obligation to destroy an insidious creature composed of dark matter.
Justice
For over five hundred years, Flint has served as Fire, aiding Earth’s environment and its people as one of four Elementals. Yet only once in his long existence has he been burned. A flaming redhead ignites the embers of his heart, but he finds her resistant to the heat building between them.
Illumination
Knowing she must fulfill her destiny, Violet travels to her home in Ireland, accompanied by the fiery Elemental. Not fooled by his charms and brazen demeanor, Violet wishes only to shield him from the coming battle, but can’t deny the flames of desire flickering when she is at his side.
Love
While standing together against unrelenting adversaries, false friends, family betrayals, and an underlying seed of darkness, they must burn bright, or the ruthless power behind the ancient spell will turn everything to ash.

With Flint as her beacon in a field of darkness, Violet will discover that love holds the most powerful magic of all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~
EXCERPT

“Good evening, Violet.” A deep male voice tinted with a faint Russian accent drifted into the kitchen and sparked goose bumps across her skin.

He’d found her.

Violet fumbled the grocery bag in her arms before placing the burden on the counter. “How…How did you find me?” She peeked around the corner into the living room, and there he sat—Flint.

Resting on his lap, a large bouquet of yellow roses popped with color against the darkness. The tissue paper crinkled as he shifted in the chair.

“Pillar told me.” His raven-wing hair and amber eyes were only discernable by the flickering light dancing across his angular features.

Violet heaved a heavy sigh. “She’s developed a big sister complex where I’m concerned. This continual belief by her that I don’t know what’s best for my own life is insulting, not to mention ridiculous. My IQ is 185. So, this condescending attitude is quite unfair.” Glaring at the man sitting in shadow, she let the silence stretch for a moment. “I realize you may have reservations about Pillar, due to her past with Quint…and the whole relationship with…ah…Nodin,” Violet flicked her fingers through the air. “But she’s trying to change. You should give her a chance.”

“Don’t.” His tone turned harsh. “Don’t give that salty square your allegiance. She sought me out. That should speak for itself.” Flint waved a hand, as if everything should be perfectly clear.

It wasn’t.

MY REVIEW

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Fantastic and fast paced Paranormal Romance!!

I love everything involving Mother Nature and the Elements, and Fire is my favorite one, so this book is for me a winner.

Flint, representing Fire, and Violet, enchanted with the power of the Electromagnetic spectrum, are that, a full of energy, light, heat, chemistry and explosive couple, embarked together in a journey against a dark and evil enemy, who is Violet's destiny to destroy or be destroyed by him. But that's not her only problem, our hot Flint is trying, by all means, to sparkle her heart with love, will she let her barriers down and allow romance in her life? Love conquers all, doesn't it?
The story is full of magic, love, betrayal, good - evil fights, action, great dialogues, complex characters, funny moments and a lot of heat!!

Highly recommended to Paranormal/Romance/Sci Fi readers.

    1. Good question, Mai! Thanks for stopping by!

    2. One subject? Hmmm...Well, I would never write about eating moose burgers. LOL. What genres do you enjoy?
      My contemporary, Ember's Center touches on some sensitive issues, but yes, there are some issues I wouldn't write about because I don't know enough about them or others might find them offensive, myself included.
      I tend to do a lot of research for my books. My husband is a scientist so I tap him for a lot of information.
      What I do like about paranormal writing is the ability to create my own worlds. I enjoy the nature/conservancy aspects of this elementals series, which I touched on more in Water's Threshold than with Fire's Field. Thanks for the question. I appreciate you stopping by.

  3. Was it easier to write a follow up once you got the world spinning in book one???

    1. My initial book, Water's Threshold was an effort to do a story about a girl who survived only by water, which led into a series about the elements. I enjoy writing science-ish facts mixed with romance, mixed with a villain. The stories come fairly easily, it's the editing that just about kills me. Writing Violet's quirks was fun, as was writing about traveling across Europe. Flint is a character all his own. He's like my perfect male. These first two books were fairly easy to orchestrate, but I was having trouble with the third one. However, I had an epiphany the other day, and I'm ready to go on the final book, Air's Vision. Thanks for the question.

    2. Ahhh Gotcha! So do you hire editors? That would get rid of some of the killing work! :P Or is it more of the content that you're editing so it's got to be you pulling the strings???

      Delete
    3. I edit, use critique partners, beta readers, then pay an editor. Lots of steps. I love my editor. She's an educator.
